As a result of the 2010 Federal Census and the new redistricting law passed last year, the district that Garrett represents will be slightly different. Starting with the next Legislative Session in January, 2013 residents of Precinct 2 in Hingham will be part of the 4th Norfolk District, which is represented by State Representative James Murphy, D-Weymouth, who won re-election on November 6th.
Another change which has already taken place is the addition of several streets to Precinct 3 in Scituate.
Both of these adjustments were necessary due to changes in population and the Constitutional and statutory requirements for equal and fair representation.
The following streets are in Precinct 2:
